Three days after being arrested
under suspicion of gang-related
activities the two close male rel-
atives of Carapo Life Sport co-
ordinator Rajaee Ali were released
without charges yesterday.
The men were arrested on
Monday at their home in Mal-
abar. Members of the Criminal
Gang and Intelligence Unit picked
up the men before detaining two
other men in Diego Martin who
were also linked to a Carapo
mosque. They too were freed yes-
The four men were kept in sep-
arate cells at the San Juan, Barataria
and Central Police Stations.
Ali, a former murder accused,
was arrested in relation to similar
offences earlier this year and after
spending several days in police
custody was also released without
Government has declared July
29 as the date for the Eid-ul-Fitr
Public Utilities Minister Nizam
Baksh announced the date during
yesterday s post-Cabinet news
conference at the Diplomatic Cen-
tre, St Ann s.
The date came as a surprise to
some Muslims as they expected
the holiday to be granted one day
earlier. Muslims began fasting on
June 29 and that period usually
lasts for 30 days.
Baksh said the decision was
accepted by Cabinet and it was
unanimous recommendation from
many leading islamic organisations
in the country, including the
Trinidad Muslim League (TML),
Anjuman Sunnat ul Jamaat Asso-
ciation (ASJA) and the Tackveey-
atul Islamic Association (TIA) rec-
ommended the date.
Baksh said the date was
approved because it was not cer-
tain the new moon would be
sighted on July 27 to allow for the
holiday to be given on July 28.
He said the leaders have said it
would not have been appropriate
to give the holiday before the likely
date for the sighting of the moon.
Tourism Minister Gerald Hadeed
yesterday attempted to leave the week-
ly post-Cabinet news conference
before it ended after being asked to
comment on a recording of a voice
that sounded similar to his describing
some Cabinet members as rats.
The recording was aired on CNC3
last month and the minister had not
responded to questions on the matter.
It came after a video of a man resem-
bling a Cabinet minister was seen in
a hotel room wrapping what appeared
to be marijuana.
Yesterday, nearing the end of the
news conference at the Diplomatic Cen-
tre, St Ann s, Hadeed was asked to
comment on the audio recording.
He said he was in the Tourism Devel-
opment Ministry and he would not
answer questions on that matter. He
did not confirm or deny it was his voice
on the recording.
He then got up and left the head
table in an attempt to leave the room
along with Public Utilities Minister
Nizam Baksh before the event was
Director of Public Information and
Communications at the Office of the
Prime Minister, Dennis Mc Commie,
who chaired the proceedings had simul-
taneously asked reporters if they had
any more questions, to which one
reporter responded: "Ministers are leav-
The two ministers returned to their
seats and more questions were posed
to Hadeed on the same matter.
He responded: "Well I am not pre-
pared to answer the question. I am not
making a story out of the story. My
position is that I am not making a story
out of another story."
As journalists continued to attempt
to get Hadeed to comment on the issue,
he quickly insisted: "I am not prepared
to answer at all."
He earlier announced incentives for
small hoteliers in the country for repairs
to their properties. The measures are
costing the Government more than $87
million over three years.
It provides for hoteliers to reclaim
in cash 20 per cent of the cost of the
repairs up to a total of $750,000.
